Plus, Jim Pollock will be at the booth personally printing 100 additional posters right in front of patrons’ eyes!  World-acclaimed artist EMEK has created one of his visual masterpieces for 10KLF 2007.

Limited edition posters will also be available for monetary donation at the Conscious Alliance booth. Donation bins will be located at designated locations marked on the festival guide map. Conscious Alliance always encourages food donations to be low-sodium and health food oriented products. “Organic” food donations are especially encouraged.

- Various campgrounds at 10KLF will be kept alive with entertainment and activities including morning yoga, tai chi, drumming workshops, and a over two dozen acts performing acoustic on the campground stages.

- The voter registration group, Headcount, will be at 10KLF registering voters and empowering them to make their voice be heard.

- The festival introduces 10KLF Charities with the goal of raising $25,000 for a variety of organizations including the Rex Foundation, Detroit Lakes Community Schools, Detroit Lakes Humane Society, the Seven Below Arts Initiative and Hoste Hainse, a school providing educational opportunities to the neediest of children within Nepal. Patrons can join 10KLF in supporting these diverse charities by contributing to donation boxes located at all General Store locations, with one lucky contributor taking home an autographed, 10KLF inlayed collector drum by Slap Happy Drums.

I think food for good Indian folk is a good enough charity. Foods really never a bad thing to support in my book
